I know I said in the headline that the Troll 2 Blu-ray is highly anticipated, and I will stand by that statement. For a select few of us, we just can't wait to own this amazingly terrible piece of cinema in full high definition! For the rest of you wondering what we're smoking, rest assured that it's good stuff. If you haven't seen Troll 2, I encourage you to rent it and rent it soon. Grab a case of beer and a few of your friends and prepare to enjoy a truly horrible film. Is it bad? Yes. Is it one of the most enjoyable bad films out there? Absolutely. This is a special level of bad, the kind where there's something new to laugh and marvel at every few scenes.

It's so bad that one of child stars of the original film has grown up and made a documentary about the film and it's following. The doc, Best Worst Movie, is a touching funny portrait of how the film changed the lives of the people involved, from the realization that it wasn't going to be their big break to the fame and popularity they found for their place in one of the worst films of all time. Best Worst Movie hits DVD on November 17th and you'll definitely want to check it out when it does.
Specs and cover art for the Troll 2 Blu-ray are now available, and despite the designation as the 20th Anniversary Nilbog Edition, it sadly looks like a bare-bones release. We will get the film in full 1080p as well as a lossless DTS-HD MA audio track and even a DVD copy, but nary a special feature to be found according to High-Def Digest. What a missed opportunity to cash in on the buzz surrounding this film as a result of Best Worst Movie! I'm still happy that it's found it's way to Blu-ray, and I'll be adding this one to my collection post-haste, but MGM dropped the ball here. I can understand if they didn't want to dig to hard for deleted scenes or behind-the-scenes footage but how hard would it have been to put an audio commentary together? Still, the fact that it's being released at all is a small miracle.
